needs to step up to the plate and says that this needs to be changed. i think that it is really over doing it to put this size of a building in a neighborhood. i had the privilege of living in twin peaks many years ago and i loved it because of the peace and the quiet and the walking trails and just a lovely area. and i don't know why something of this size needs to be cramed into a neighborhood when everybody around there is explained that they don't want it. of course a building would improve their values if it was conducive to the neighborhood but it is not. and i think that somebody needs to make a decision. >> thank you. >> do you care to state your name for the record? >> cunning ham. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please? >> my name is jake, (inaudible) and i used to be on the board of supervisors, but this is just a copy of a letter and i am not sure that it is in the file. i apologize because i was out of the state and i realize that you like to get them a week in advance, i want to go back over the weekend. >> commissioners, we tried to insert it into the planning code and
